My Top 3 Winter Affordable Lipsticks


I love the colder months where I can whip out my dark, berry toned lipsticks. I own a lot of lipsticks (so many that I'm ashamed to admit how many I own) but because I have such a large collection I am now so picky so to what lipstick makes top shelf status. I took my job to narrow down my favourite top three affordable lipsticks very seriously. What I look for in a lipstick is high colour impact, comfort on the lips, that it doesn't bleed or run, that it doesn't cake or gather up weirdly, smells good and that it is easy to apply plus that it is affordable. What I count is affordable is a lipstick that is £10 or less. So after careful consideration these are my stop 3 winter affordable lipsticks.


Third Place: Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick 107

This is a truly classic blogger lipstick and for good reasons too. The colour play off is incredible. The texture is so creamy and smooth it makes application a dream. I don't need a lipliner when wearing this because it is a matte it doesn't bleed or run outside my lips yet it is still very comfortable to wear. There are different colour tone depths so it looks totally different on each person. Depending on your skin colour it will highlight a different shade in the lipstick so anyone can pull this colour off. On me this colour is very dark and rich with a strong shade of black cherry coming through. For me this lipstick does not dry out my lips at all or cling to any flaky skin and I can wear it all day without needing to top it up. A big tick for me is that it is so stress free that it is a no brainer that this has to be in my top 3. I also cannot get over the smell, it is so sweet and delightful that I find myself sniffing the product before I put it on my lips. Plus it only costs £5.49 which is the cheapest product out of all three I have here!


Second Place: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Cherries in the Snow

Revlon lipsticks do not get enough credit here in the blogging community and I have no idea why. They are so high quality and the packing looks super chic. My ultimate favourite shade for winter is Cherries in the Snow which is a lovely pink raspberry colour that is bright but because of the raspberry tones it is a lovely berry colour to wear for the winter (plus the name is totally fitting). This isn't a matte finish so it is very moisturising but it packs a punch in colour play off. I only need one sweep and the colour is so opique that I'm shocked that this is an affordable lipstick. It can tend to gather a little on the insides of my lips but it isn't anything horrible and to be honest if a lipstick isn't matte most do this to me. For me there is no scent and I can get an accurate application just by applying the product out of the bullet. This lipstick retails for £7.99


First Place: Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick Under my Spell

Rimmel really do smash it when it comes to their lip products and this one which released last year has not disappointed. It is a very comfortable formula which is not matte but, like the Revlon lipstick, is super opaque in colour. For a moisturising lipstick it doesn't gather at all anywhere on the lips and it stays on all day long without any need of a touch up. I have no idea how Rimmel formulated this product but it truly is an amazing formula that I have not experienced with any other brand. It has the same amazing sweet scent like the Kate Matte Lipstick but what makes this lipstick that little bit more amazing is how the product is executed into the bullet. It has a super sharp edge which it makes so super easy to create a sharp line without the need for a lip pencil. I also adore this colour, it a purple with a pink undertone which makes this shade super easy and flattering to wear (even during the day and I am also prone to wearing this to work as well without it looking out of place). This amazing lipstick comes at an amazing price of £6.99.
